Researcher profile

Kenneth J. Spiteri is a Senior Lead Consultant with an IT consultancy firm, providing business systems, solutions and IT consultancy services. He is also currently also studying for a part-time PhD in Science and Technology, specialising in Cloud Computing concepts. The research is both relevant to his professional work and also significant to new academic developments in this field. Whilst research may be more arduous and can take longer to gain the PhD award when compared to full-time study, he believes this is outweighed by the enhancement in his contribution to this IT sector that will arise through being at the academic forefront of his professional career.
